    The sparks card is like the CC in T, but linked to offers.

    People have been getting wonderful offers, I think that you have to use the card to unlock offers.

    Boden the voucher sent in post works with the 10% and free delivery code which I found on hukd.
    The pink tunic top in sale is really lovely and fantastic quality but doesn't allow for a large cup size. If Under an E it would look fab with white jeans.
    I got the orange sleeveless wrap top and paid £6.25 after all deductions I think. Mum lucked out this time as not in her size but still waiting to see if she gets a voucher as well.

    everytime you go to Sainsbobs take your receipt and cheap leggings and keep checking for the £10 leggings - def worth the money, i think mine are on their third winter now

    I even wear woolly tights underneath for extra warmth

    Done the culling of cheap ones so need quite a few pairs of those anyway. Think dd walks off with them when she stays. My £12.50 stretchy skinny jeans are on 3rd winter as well. I like sainsbobs clothing for some things especially basics.

Which makes me think that they haven't all suddenly had a personality change rather that the tills must have been playing up all day and only those like us in the know, noticed enough to ask.
